Default Quad Core Hackintosh HTPC and Drobo setup!

I've got this setup sitting under my TV feeding me a metric buttload of movies and TV shows. The hackintosh is fast enough to play a HD and SD stream simultaneously (great for watching a movie while doing a workout video) and will easily download a movie while playing a movie.

Here are the specs:

2.33 GHz Intel Quad Core Processor
ASUS P5N7A-VM LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300/nForce 730i HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
2 GB RAM
1 TB HD
All wrapped up in this black HTPC case:



I've got a Drobo attached to the HTPC to hold all of my media. It has two 1.5 TB drives and two 1 TB drives for a total of 3.17 TB of redundant space. Basically any hard drive can fail and your data is still there (and you can access it too while you rebuild the array!).

The advantage of the drobo is that you can mix and match drives, so if you need more space, pop one out and slide in a larger capacity one!

I've been using this as a media storage unit and it has worked flawlessly for me. In fact, there just might be 2.5 TB of media on it. And you just might like it.

With Plex installed this is a really slick HTPC setup, especially with the Plex remote for your iPhone or iPod Touch.

I'll sell everything for $650 + any shipping. I think that's a pretty smoking deal. If any DC/Baltimore people want to do local, I'd prefer that. I'm selling because I won't have the time to watch a ton for the foreseeable future.

Email me at capt "underscore" crunch "at" mac "dot" com. Thanks!
